What kind of special sauce do you use on a Veggie Burger

Hi:
Having Veggie burgers tonight (the Original Gardenburger) and I'm looking for a condiment to kick it up a notch in flavor. Not looking for hot spicy, just something to compliment the sandwich. I will be putting sliced avocado, tomato, onion, pickles (sweet) and lettuce.

Perhaps something to add to mayo would be right. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

2.5 -3 tablespoons mayo
1 tablespoon dijon mustard or spicy brown
1 - 1 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish (more if you like horseradish)

Mix well and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

The ginger remoulade I serve with tuna might be good on that: http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...1&postcount=15 HTH.

I had roasted red pepper salsa on my veggie burger yesterday. Today I had pesto. Hummus would also be tasty.

Definitely not McDonald's special sauce! I am kinda boring I just put BBQ sauce on it, but if I am feeling kinda adventurous I might put on a Szechwan sauce or oriental sauce, maybe a Terriyaki style sauce.

A little lemon juice,mixed with mayo and mashed mint, but with this I'd leave the pickle out. A different kind of zing.

Thanks all.

Some good suggestions. I'll have to see what I have available in the kitchen before I decide.

A big ladel of home made chili should do the trick.

Chutney! Major Grey's or whatever you can get. I have some peach chutney that I made and it's really good on a burger.

Aioli, mustard and cranberry and caramelised onion relish. Put the mustard on the bun that the veggie burger sits on, some of the relish on top of the burger and aioli on top of the tomatoes.

I like to sprinkle it with a little soy sauce before cooking. Add some grilled onions and wasabi mayo.

What special item do I use on my veggie burgers? hmmmm....oh, I know:

Cow. Cause the only veg on MY burgers are tomatoes, lettuce, and maybe an onion ring.

(Sorry, I couldn't resist).

I know someone who eats those things (I refuse to allow such items into my house), and I know he likes putting a horseradish mustard on them.

I take it that ketchup would also be alright with you, BT?

You already got the avocados on there, but I remember when I was in atlanta a year ago, I had a Veggie Burger with guacamole on it, lettuce , and a relish made from chopped onions, peppers and tomatoes. It was very very good. And if u want the heat, toss some jalepenos in the guac.

Heinz had a good Hamburger Relish (Red), but you can't buy it any more so I found a good replacement:
